Dramatically doing up the eye with bright colors or with a Smokey look results in “fantasy makeup”. For example, the cat’s eye makeup, popular in the 1960’s is achieved by using eyeliner drawn up from the corner of the eye.
Fantasy Eye Makeup
This type of makeup is applied for special occasions, such as Halloween. Fantasy characters like gnomes, vampires, and witches are quite popular. These are achieved using blacks, reds, and whites.
Contact lenses in different colors are available to enhance the eerie look. A word of caution here – make sure to use good quality lenses to protect your eyes from permanent damage. Glittering and shimmery eyes shadow or mascara can be used to make the eyes really stand out.
